This event, bought to you by Look and VIEW, is exclusively for professionals in the VI sector/working with visually impaired CYPF.

During this FREE event, we will feedback on our key learning points gathered from families who are worried/have questions about supporting their child’s literacy at home and will discuss the best strategies and solutions for addressing family concerns.

Topics will cover:

  • Helping parents stimulate their children’s interest in reading
  • Working with families whose first language is not English
  • Accessing leisure reading in accessible formats
  • Supporting pre-braille and braille skills
  • Promoting low vision skills
  • Accessible apps/ICT to promote literacy skills

The discussion will be facilitated by John Rous-Milligan, Executive VIEW member along with a panel of sector experts.

We will offer a chance for troubleshooting ideas, discussing challenges, and sharing best practices.

We will also exchange helpful resources and information that can be used to support families.
